Former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy Andrew McCabe refused to testify before Congress regarding their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information in her private email server on Monday.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, said he tried to subpoena Comey and McCabe to compel them to testify before Congress, but his subpoena was blocked by none other than Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Under committee rules, the ranking Democrat on the committee must agree with the chairman in order to issue a subpoena.
McCabe pleaded the Fifth, invoking his right against self-incrimination, in deciding not to testify.
What possible crime could McCabe not want to incriminate himself for?
The more pressing question is — why isn’t Dianne Feinstein asking this same question? Why does she not want FBI officials to testify about the Clinton investigation?
It appears as if Feinstein doesn’t want the American public to know the truth about the FBI’s protocol, or lack thereof, in its investigation — or about how the FBI let Clinton off the hook.
